Viability of the digital newspaper printing proposition varies from geographic market to market, but if you want to check out the latest ideas, Lucerne in February is the place to be.
Maybe it could be the way forward for printed newspapers.
The 2019 Hunkeler Innovationdays event is scheduled for the Swiss city from February 25-28, and will be focussed on automated processes.
Many of the almost 100 exhibitors have announced global premieres at their stands.
The Innovationdays event in two halls of the Messe Luzern exhibition centre is the thirteenth staging, and is themed 'Success with automation'. Part of this is to do with reducing makeready times as through workflow as print run lengths decline.
Those interested in attending can register at innovationdays.com. Entrance is free of charge.
